Waco, TX: College Town with Old West History and Dr. Pepper Museum
Waco is a mid-sized city set in the heart of Texas, situated halfway between Dallas and Austin. It’s home to Baylor University, and the crowd skews young—in turn, many restaurants, sports arenas, and museums have popped up in the area.
At the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum, you can learn about Texas’s legendary Rangers, law-enforcing Old West riders who fought to maintain peace and stop dangerous criminals. Also on display: the badges and guns of historic riders and view the museum’s Lone Ranger collection.
Waco is also the birthplace of Dr. Pepper. At the Dr. Pepper Museum, there’s a collection of more than 100,000 items of Dr. Pepper memorabilia and a working Dr. Pepper soda fountain. From there, you can take a stroll along the scenic, seven-mile Riverwalk along the Brazos River, where joggers pass under the Waco Suspension Bridge, a 143-year-old single-span suspension, pedestrian-only bridge that is popular among residents.
